CHERRY BLOSSOMS IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

The Library of Congress and Washington, D.C. celebrate the coming of Spring with Cherry Blossoms. The Library Shop has a magnificent assortment of cherry blossom inspired products like wind chimes, stationery, calligraphy sets, and many more hard to find Cherry Blossom themed items.

From March 20th-April 14th the Cherry Blossom Festival will commemorate the lasting friendship between the United States and Japan. The festival honors the continued close relationship between the two countries. 3,000 cherry blossom trees were given to the city of Washington, D.C. in 1912 from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo. It is believed that the cherry blossom tree on the lawn outside our Jefferson building was one of the original trees from 100 years ago.
